PPA Challenge #8 K.I.S.S.

"Keep It Simple Sweetie"
This is Challenge #8 from Pals Paper Arts.
Clean with lots of white space, simple designs, minimum time to create and limited layers and embellishments.

My card this week is a simple wedding card.

I used the Big Shot to make my card simple and fast.

I used the "Top Note" die first to cut my card shape with "Shimmer White" cardstock and then I sent it through again using the "Elegant Bouquet" embossing folder. This gave me a plain white card. I wanted something soft. I took a blending brush and Stampin Up's! Classic Stampin' Pads in Pale Plum, Certainly Celery and Barely Banana and went to work. In just a few minuets I had color in my Card. I added Stampin' Ups! Whisper White Organza Ribbon and the hardest part of all, the wording. I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig to place my words on my card so that I have a better chance of getting them straight or semi-straight. :)

I used the stamp "A Day to Remember, a Lifetime to Love." I just love the stamp set it comes from, it's called "Very Versatile" and it is. I just found out today that it is no longer available as it is not in the new catalog.

For any of the other items to make this card shop 24/7 from my web site to have your items shipped directly to you or give me a call, send me an email and I will order everything for you.

Have a good week and Happy Stampin!
